A brief description of the employee wellness program, policy, or practice:

The University of San Diego’s strength and success depends on our valued employees; therefore Being Well @ USD was created by the department of Human Resources. USD wants to make sure that our workplace helps employees maintain and/or improve their health. We believe that the everyday choices we make can help us live healthier and happier lives, both at work and at home. The mission statement of Being Well @ USD is to create a supportive environment for our USD community that encourages a healthy lifestyle encompassing the emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual components of being well. Being Well @ USD is committed to providing opportunities for the USD community to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

This new program provides several wellbeing services for employees. These include wellbeing information provided on the USD Wellness website and regular “Being Well @ USD” sessions. The Being Well @ USD website has content specifically targeting employee wellness issues. Under each Being Well component, information is provided as well as links to internal and external resources that will help in improving wellness in this area. The “Being Well @ USD” sessions are free interactive workshops with internal and external presenters discussing topics such as making healthy choices, personal fitness goals and making behavioral changes.
